Emmanuel Forbes off to a strong start at camp

According to Ben Standig of The Athletic, rookie DB Emmanuel Forbes has had a good start to his training camp, being active in coverage and learning his body better.

Fantasy Impact

Forbes was drafted in the middle of the first round based on his instincts and knack for the ball in coverage. At 173 pounds, Forbes has his limitations as a defender based on his frame, but Standig said Forbes is learning what he can and can't do with his build. If Forbes can continue to develop as a consistent coverage defender, he can thrive as a ball-hawking corner despite his size.

Emmanuel Forbes selected No. 16 by Washington Commanders

The Washington Commanders have selected CB Emmanuel Forbes with the No. 16 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The Commanders add Forbes to a cornerback room led currently by Kendall Fuller and Benjamin St-Juste. Forbes has great instincts and ball recognition and should end up with his fair share of interceptions. Thor Nystrom has Forbes ranked at No. 38 overall and CB6 with a NFL comparison of Jack Jones in his Top 500 big board.
